Race 4 – the “Diamond Jubilee,” Group 1, 6 furlongs, 4 years old and older. Purse = $819,000. 11:20 EDT
Top #14 Wandjina (10/1 ML) 2nd #11 Pearl Secret (15/1) 3rd #3 Brazen Beau (5/2)
#14 Wandjina is a tough 7 furlong sprinter but Ascot finishes slightly uphill so its 6f races tend to favor horses with a little more stamina.
#11 Pearl Secret ran a “sneaky good” race in the 5 furlong King’s Stand on Tuesday and the history of the Golden Jubilee has a lot of horses that closed well in that race and come right back 5 days later and hit the top 3.
#3 Brazen Beau is the most talented 6 furlong horse in the field, but I wonder if he will run his best. At 5/2 I am not that interested to invest.
